plans. >>> "the washington post" reports tonight that two major silicon agencies were hacked. the nsa secretly broke into the main communications links that connect data centers around the world belonging to google and yahoo. it sites documents leaked by edward snowden and says the government intercepted more than 180 million records over the span of 30 days collecting e-mail, video and more before items had been sent and before they arrived to the destination. google was unaware this was happening and yahoo said it has not given the government access to the data centers. >>> there is a new layer of mystery surrounding the four-story structure on a barge at treasure island. the coast guard says it visited the barge but can't talk about it for legal reasons. a spokesman for the coast guard did not reveal at least one employee signed a non-disclosure agreement with google and once it completed, whatever it is, the coast guard would release information about it. there is speculation that google is building a floating data center powered by ocean waves. google received a patent for that c
-ed in "the l.a. times." you called for changes to be made to the nsa's massive phone data gathering program and say it's the evidence that it has made us safer is limited. instead it appears that the utility of the metadata program has been conflated with the success of other collection efforts. how do you determine how much surveillance, then, is too much? >> i think we have to weigh what is the size of the program, what is the magnitude of the collection and what are the results it's getting? and even more than that, even if it met that test, even if the metadata program was very successful, we also have to ask, is it necessary to collect all this data or can the program be restructured? in my view, the program can be restructured in a way that has the telecommunications providers retain their own data. i doesn't require the government to get all that data. when we suspect that a phone number is connected to a plot, then we go to the phone company, much as we would do in a criminal investigation. so i think we can get the same information we need. we can continue to protect the country. w

"the coffee would be ready, he'd get my coffee cup out and put a sticky note on it and write, 'hey my beautiful wife' or 'have a good day, i love you.' it was always different." >> reporter:

that nsa leaker edward snowden could be granted clemency. i want to bring in benjamin carden. senator carden, glad to have you here, sir. >> alex, good to be with you. >> edward snowden released what he called this manifesto for the truth. he says current debates about spying just prove his revelations are helping bring about change. what's your response to that? >> mr. snowden has caused real damage to this country. the manner in which he has conducted these releases have compromised our national security. as senator feinstein said, there's a way in which a whistleblower can get information to us. we want to make sure there's adequate oversight on the powers of the intelligence community. we need the right balance to keep us safe and protect the rights of americans. so there's concern on how we collect data, but for a person who has been given that access and trust on his own to do this type of release is detrimental to our country. >> sir, as you serve on the senate foreign relations committee, i know you're privy to things we are not necessarily. do you believe what we know so far
